This egg-ceptional cookbook is filled with easy, creative dishes that show how to use eggs in some very creative ways in your cooking. Ferroni debunks the misconception that eggs are only for breakfast. Far from it, as you'll discover as you see how to create salads, soups, main dishes and even sweets using the incredible egg!

Have you ever considered nachos and eggs, crab chipotle cob salad with eggs, spinach and egg lasagna or baked eggs with honey? Of course not, but you will after reading this cookbook.

To get the egg rolling here, the author begins with an explanation on how to select the best eggs available and then how to prepare them by either boiling, frying, scrambling, poaching, baking or pickling them. There are also instructions on how to whip up either basic meringue or Italian meringue.

Once she's eggducated her reader on the basics, Ferroni turns to breakfasts, starters, salads & soups, and lunches. Then it is on to main dishes like an egg-topped deep dish pizza or New Mexico-style Christmas enchiladas and sweets. And if you are adventurous enough to want to try some unusual cocktails using eggs, there are six recipes, including one for a lime meringue margarita.

If you need to ease yourself into this culinary eggperience, try the grilled cheese and egg sandwich, the fried-egg tacos or the hot dog with scrambled eggs and hot sauce. Once you've broken the shell, so to speak, you'll want to try other recipes.
